Mint 12 install fail at add user - possible workaround

Post by kirmonkey »

Hello all,

Trying the RC for Mint 12 I found that the install was failing at the add user stage (in the install process, not where I put my details in) and crashing ubiquity, the install programme.

As a workaround I chose not to encrypt my /home partition and the install proceeded smoothly.

Hope this helps if you are having the same problem.

Hi!
Thanks for your post, it solved my problem! I had exactly the same problem as you - only I thought it had to do with my SSD and partitioning.
Thanks,
Markus
